Welcome to Jewish Museum Milwaukee’s online Press Room. This page is designed for members of the working press. The media, upon request, may access information on current and upcoming exhibits. 

Jewish Museum Milwaukee is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of the Jewish people in southeastern Wisconsin and celebrating the continuum of Jewish heritage and culture. The history of American Jews is rooted in thousands of years of searching for freedom and equality. We are committed to sharing this story and the life lessons it brings with it, so that we may enhance the public’s awareness and appreciation of Jewish life and culture.

As the Midwest’s most vibrant Jewish cultural organization, we build bridges between diverse communities with shared histories; we explore contemporary issues through the lens of Jewish history, culture and values; and inspire artists, thinkers, educators and future leaders to engage with Jewish history, culture, and values as they pursue justice.

Jewish Museum Milwaukee has a rich past. Learn more here.

Members of the media may photograph or film any area in Jewish Museum Milwaukee for the purpose of news coverage. Museum staff must be present at all photo/film shoots. If you have any questions or would like more information, please email us at [email protected].
